Operators become members of teams that function in a range of different capacities that align with the skills and experience of the operators

The Albany Support Operations Team, (also known as the Emergency Response Team) is made up by experienced club members from different backgrounds who bring a special skill set to the team with good knowledge of our coastal area.
